THE CRYSTAL METHOD
8 p.m., The Village. $25.

Ever since turning a Glenwood, Calif., bomb shelter into a shabby electro laboratory in 1993, The Crystal Method has been a fixture in the electronica soundscape, releasing hordes of singles and one certified platinum album in its 1997 classic, "Vegas." In so many years, the duo has become representatives of the sound, thanks in part to Hollywood's appetite for frantic beats in movie trailers and car chases. And the movie business cats are right, too; theirs is an adrenalized sound that fits rapid-cut hysteria and metropolitan car chases. The pair operates in heady, chunking fusions of techno, hard rock and hip-hop in which everything is big: big drums, huge synths, enormous breaks. But for this show, The Crystal Method is sticking behind the ones and twos, DJing and live remixing a night's worth of hedonistic booms, bips and pows through the fantastic sound system at The Village. A slate of local DJs open the show, with Sleepy Genius, Justin Sane, Ewell, Paul Grass and Andy Sadler in the main room while DJs Digital Love, Sleek, Wolf-E-Wolf and Stepchild bring the wobble to the dubstep room. Dancers, brace yourself; this should be the biggest techno show of the year.
